Following the armed robbery and subsequent death of a 20-year-old Senegalese national (Amat Touray) along the Palma Rima Beach on the 27/03/2022, rigorous investigation efforts by Kotu Police Station detectives uncovered evidence connecting a gang of six young men from Wellingara and Sinchu Baliya area.
This followed an earlier report of the incident at Kanifinng Estate Station by the victim’s friend who escorted him to the Serekunda General Hospital. The Kanifing police notified Kotu who embarked on an intensive probe that led to the arrest of one Momodou Lamin Dahaba of Sinchu Baliya.
Upon interrogation, Dahaba confessed to being part of a gang that attacked the deceased on the day in question. He cooperated with police investigators and provided the names of his gang mates. All those implicated were raided and arrested by the police and are currently helping them in their investigations. In the meantime, all six suspects have been indicted and remanded in prison.
The general public is hereby advised to continue to be vigilant and close ranks with the police in combating crime for a better society.
